I am going to Oregon in July. Is there any way to get a carry permit before then or can I go there and get one?

Moving to Oregon or just travelling through?

Quick internet search returns these tidbits:

Permits are available from Sheriff's offices and can take 45 days to issue.
Must apply in-person.
Resident permit is "shall issue"; non-resident permit (available to residents of neighboring states) is "may issue".
Oregon does not recognize other states' permits.
New permit is $65 ($50 + $15 background check); renewal is $50.
Open carry is legal without a permit; however, loaded open carry is regulated by some municipalities.

Sheriff Palmer from Grant County, Oregon has, on occasion come down to California, or sent someone, to take applications. That's how I got my Oregon LTC.

And I'm afraid you just missed an opportunity (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=570098&highlight=Palmer).

However, if you can get by the Grant County Sheriff's office on your trip, you could apply there. Call ahead, because I understand they take applications at only certain times.

Here's some additional information on getting an Oregon LTC:

You can't do it before you get to OR.

So I may be able to do it when I get into Oregon if I go through Grant County?

[1] Since in Oregon a non-resident LTC is "may issue", it's up to the Sheriff's discretion. We know that Sheriff Palmer of Grant County has been good about issuing LTCs to qualified California residents based on "self defense" as good cause. So Grant County is a good choice. There may be others.

[2] You won't be able to get a LTC "while you wait" no matter where you go. But since you do need to apply in person, you might want to go ahead while you're there. That way at least you'll have it for your next trip.

I wondee if the Grant County Sheriff is interested in running for Sheriff in Los Angeles County or another Californua County. He sounds like a sensible guy.

quite interesting, I didn't know that since many states honor OR LTC.
guess travelers have to OC in OR then?

The Grant County Sheriff issues to out of state non-criminals. But if you apply while up there it won't be issued immediately. There is still the usual background check that needs to happen. Your license will be mailed to you later. I forget how long mine took, but it was at least 3 weeks if I recall.

And confirmed 5 minutes ago............too expensive for them, and no suggestion for an alternative.

Klamath County is the best alternative for Southeastern Oregon.

That's southern OR - Grants Pass area. And IIRC the sheriff there will readily issue to out of state. Josephine Cty just turned down a real estate tax increase that was supposed to pay for LE. The county went from about 80 sheriffs to about 4 - including the sheriff himself. The popular response up there is "buy a gun". I'll bet he's busy.

A stop on Crater Lake Highway in Medford is good. Good Guy Guns, Sportsmans Warehouse, Big R and a few other small shops is worthwhile. There's also a pawn shop in town that has about 250 - 300 guns, all used of course and mostly "can't get them in CA" types.

Yeah, I see that now. Damn shame. Sheriff Gilbertson is a good guy too. Hopefully they'll get to the point where they can accept out of state apps again.
